Your Love Is True...song lyrics

Updated on March 5, 2011

I am not a song writer, although I have always wished to be one. Just as poetry moves my spirit, so does music. Nonetheless, to write a song has long been a secret heart's desire. Last night, I listened to a Contemporary Christian song on YouTube, and immediately after it finished, the first two lines of this song came to me, although at the time I had no idea it was to be a song.  Within moments of typing the first two lines, the next six lines came...without thought, mind you. As I sat staring at my laptop screen, a tune started playing in my head...and the most amazing part of this little tale is that the words fit the tune perfectly!

It is my humble opinion that the words and melody of this song were given to me through Divine Inspiration, by God, who in so giving, fulfilled one of the deepest desires of my heart...and it is with great joy that I share this song with you!

Your Love Is True


why is it so hard to see

that You could love someone like me...

why is it so hard to feel

that this Love from You is real...


Chorus:

You are not a feeling, though...

Yet You set my heart a glow

All I am I give to You...

because I know Your Love is true...


I was lost and in despair

You reached out and met me there...

How is it that this could be

Someone like You could care for me...


Chorus:

You are not a feeling, though...

Yet You set my heart a glow

All I am I give to You...

because I know Your Love is true...


I come to the table bare

I find You wait to serve me there...

Love is not what I deserve

Yet You wait with Love to serve ...


Chorus:

You are not a feeling, though...

Yet You set my heart a glow

All I am I give to You...

because I know Your Love is true...


I was just an empty cup

But You came and filled me up...

Now my heart just overflows

Because Your Love just grows and grows...


Chorus:

You are not a feeling, though...

Yet You set my heart a glow

All I am I give to You...

because I know Your Love is true...

      ...back to revisit a classic Miss M and remember that song by Debby Boone back in the 70's YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE and everyone thought it was about her lover and it was about God - well here I sit sending warming wishes and good energy your way on this sunday morning with 3rd and final cup of coffee and arias by J.S. Bach.

      I just opened up your card and I am glad about your son's progress and that you will be returning to the sunshine state ..... well you are my 'sunshine'

      Paul, To be honest with you, I have spent all of my life believing that I was unlovable...even by God...and to have that removed from me has given this old blind woman sight! I cannot tell you what that means! Thank you for sharing my joy!

      epigramman, I must confess, I have been waiting for you! Methinks this is the "song" the little angel placed in the heart of the "old woman"...I was anxious for your response! I am thrilled!

      Well you have another amazing talent to add to your bow. When the words are put to the music I do hope you'll record it on utube so that we can all hear.

      There is so much love in this piece of work, no wonder you are so excited. Brilliant.

      Voted up and pressing those buttons.

      Bridget, Thank you!

      Doug, The melody that came with these words includes the Ooh oh ohs...after your comment though, I had to agree...the Oohs are part of the music and didn't quite fit in this hub so I removed them...Thank you for your most insightful comments and read! ps a last verse has been added...it is complete now.

      Fossillady, thank you...your comments are a true blessing to me!!!

      Always, these were a real surprise to me...wasn't thinking song lyrics when this came...then the tune right behind it...shocked my socks off! I am so glad you like it and it is awesome to see you!!!

      Very uplifting and nicely written lyrics. You wrote them like a pro, converting your poetic talents over with ease. The "ooh oh oh" was slightly confusing and didn't translate well for me (I think lyricists add those kinds of things in performance, not in the writing), but this was enjoyable. Glad you have such love in your life.

      Limits, limits. There are none except the ones we create for ourselves. Why can't you have two people working on music for the same song and I betya CMCastro who has been waiting for this opporunity for so long will not disappoint!

      Christina, I wish I had know this about you yesterday...I would have called you right up! As it is, I have a friend here who writes songs and plays guitar and piano, who is writing the music...I am so sorry, I did not know!!! O well...thank you, anyways. If Another song should come to me, I will call you asap!

      Now I am impressed. You have the complete gamut of writing talent that I have. I started writing song lyrics around the age of eleven, and being a guitarist and a piano keyboardist, I have some knack of creating the music. If you would seriously like to collaborate on this song, we could do it. If you don't mind singing it to me over the phone, and I can strum while you sing. Wouldn't that be great? You words are great. And true to the Heart. Let me know what you think. I've been wanting to collaborate with someone for years.
